Angel Aquino agreed to play a transgender for the movie Porno, which tackles the pornography industry of the Philippines.
Her character named Alessandra underwent a sex operation in the past. Even though she gained a new body, she can still feel the stigma of her past identity.
Director Adolfo Alix Jr. shows the inter-connected lives of three people who are trying to find “the ultimate joy in their empty lives.” His entry has three segments featuring three persons who are all addicted to pornography.
Carlo Aquino is cast as Alecks, a teenager who works in the porn industry. Carlo says about his character: “Sa Recto, may mga motels, di ba? May mga nilalagay daw sila na mga hidden cameras doon. Tapos, yung mga ibini-video doon, idina-dub ko—yun yung role ko.”
Meanwhile, Yul Servo is cast as Xander, an assassin who loves watching porn.
